It's no Portillos, but it's as close as you can get this far south. I was extremely pleased to see they actually make the food I miss most from Chicago! I was a little worried when I saw the ' hot peppers' on the menu. Ecstatic when I found out that it was actually Sport peppers like it should be! Love the atmosphere as well. Tiny place but it's still comfy.

One of Florenceโ€™a hidden gem in the downtown square. They have awesome, made to order hot dogs and brauts (out of brats for now). Quick service and a cozy environment. You lol enjoy the atomosphere of their little humble abode. They have a great selection to choose from and even offer delivery (grub south) and carry out orders!! Gotta check em out!!

Always quick, easy and delicious. Best Italian beef I've had outside of Chicago I've found in all my travels across this state. The ambiance even feels a bit like back home. Its so awesome
